It is impressive to arrive there and find all the potteries. Once you start really looking into each shop, you will realize that they pretty much all have the same. I understand it's the traditional style of Safi but I cannot differentiate all the pottery...More

Many choices of colorful and intricate pottery from this town, which otherwise suffers from an identity crisis in Morocco. Too bad as the handiwork is worth taking in for its detail. There is not much else to recommend here however.

The amount of pottery I saw blew me away and my only complaint is that I couldn't buy it all. Shop keepers were friendly and not pushy like other parts of Morocco and the items were incredible. I would recommend a visit if you have...More

It's a nice place to visit. Unfortunately the Safi museum was close for a certain reason. It nice to visit the coline des potiers if you are a first time visitor to Morocco, but if not it might not be that interesting.
